Minolta X570 35mm Film SLR Camera with Minolta MD 50mm F/1.7 Fast Prime Lens - Fully Functional
Here we have a very nice Minolta X570 SLR camera with Minolta MD 50mm F/1.7 fast prime lens. This camera is fully functional, comes with new batteries, and is ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The camera is in nice condition cosmetically and is mechanically perfect. The film compartment, battery compartment, viewfinder, and mirror box are all clean. The shutter is in perfect condition, and the light meter works perfectly. All functions, dials, knobs, and levers work as they should.
The lens is one of Minolta's fantastic super fast MD lenses, well-regarded for its outstanding build quality and exceptional optics. The aperture blades are clean and free of oil, and actuate flawlessly. The focus ring spins with perfectly weighted fluidity and the aperture ring clicks into its detents with mechanical precision. The lens elements are clean with no damage to the optical coatings, and no fungus.
Minolta's lenses are exceptional, and this is a perfect example of the standard focal length 50mm lens. It offers a fast aperture of F/1.7, perfect for low light photography, portraits, subject isolation, and excellent bokeh. Stop the aperture down and this lens sharpens up to capture pin-point precise detail. From snapshots, to landscapes, and everything in between, this lens does it all and does it all very well.
This camera features Minolta's ubiquitous SR mount, meaning all MD/MC and Celtic lenses will fit without any issues or necessary adapters.
The X570 is one of Minolta's best electronic SLR cameras ever. It was designed to be a less capable X700, but many photographers found it to be superior to that machine in a number of important ways. Superior electronics allow for a viewfinder that shows the manually selected shutter speed as well as the light meter reading, a feature not found in the X700. The camera also offers superior flash capabilities over the older machine.
This camera shoots in aperture priority as well as having full Manual mode. The X570 also has a massive range of accessories and lenses. This is the type of camera that was built for real enthusiasts, without being a fully professional grade body. Perfect for the avid photographer.
